You can stop reading the bad reviews about this place. This place is great Mexican fare. Sure it is not a brand new restaurant but it is hard to eat decorations and wallpaper. The food here is great and the value is even greater. You...More

Our meals were overloaded with sodium and the beans and fish were old and not fresh. As the only "Gringos" present, we did not get that good hospitality feeling. We didn't finish our meals and felt sick when we got home later that evening. We...More

This restaurant is located in a bright, colorful building on Plumb Lane two blocks east of So. Virginia. If I remember right it use to be a Bob Big Boy. My wife had a filet of fish covered with a cream sauce, small mild whole...More

Authentic chips, great seafood cocktail, excellent salsas and beans. Service was great too. Sometimes the best food can really be found in strip mall!

We "dined" here because we had a restaurant.com voucher. A mistake. The fish taco was limp, and the ceviche was unlike any ceviche I have ever had in Panama or Mexico. Will never come back.

I live in Reno and have driven by this place countless times. Friends were in town for Hot August Nights (HAN) and they asked for seafood. My first response was Rapscallions, as good as it is, it is still a bit pricey. So using Tripadvisor...More

This was our first visit to "EL PESCADOR" an certainly not our last. The service was excellent and the food was great. Try the stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon or the shrimp fajita. The beer is cold, and don't forget the lime!
